Sunmote


Hello, Today I have a pattern for this little doily :D  It's called Sunmote because it reminded me of the crafting reagent icon in World of Warcraft!  The doily has 19 rounds and measures about 6".  2 different sizes of thread are used- size 3 for the center and size 10 for the outer rounds.  I also tried using 2 strands of size 10 with a 3.25 mm hook for the center which can be substituted for size 3. 

This doily has front post crochet stitches, clusters, and picots in 3 different sizes.  The thread I used for the black and green one is Aunt Lydias size 3 cotton and Nazli Gelin Garden Space.  For the other ones I used Aunt Lydias size 10 cotton in ecru and Aunt Lydias size 3 cotton in the colors- sage, warm rose, copper mist, and warm teal.


This doily is 19 rounds and measures about 6" in diameter.
Color 1- size 3 cotton crochet thread- 20 yards
Color 2- size 10 cotton crochet thread- 50 yards
3.25 mm hook
1.75 mm hook

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece.  Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened.  Soak the doily and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches.  Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the doily working from the center out to the edges.  Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.

  13. amazing!!! seriously thanking you so much for such a great free pattern. i loved it originally but thought my eyes might do better if i tried it out with worsted weight cotton and made it a hotpad! i used two strands held together and a 6.5mm hook for the center, and one strand with a 3.75mm hook for the outside. it’s turned out to be about 15.5” across from picot to picot before blocking. my mom is going to love this as her mother’s day gift! 💚
